A ChurchOfThePoorA Church of the Poor: Pope Francis and the Transformation of Orthodoxy

Clemens Sedmak

In this treatment of the theology of Pope Francis and his notion of a “church of the poor” and the implications for theological orthodoxy, Sedmak argues that Pope Francis can allow us to understand "orthodoxy in a new key.”

Using resources ranging from scripture to Catholic Social Teaching to the early Church Fathers, he argues that an authentic and faithful church is not one obsessed with dogma or ceremony, but one that is poor as Christ was poor, in the sense of that phrase: compassionate, unattached to material wealth, focused on flourishing and right relationship with God.

DiscoveringPopeFrancisDiscovering Pope Francis: The Roots of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s Thinking

Editors: Brian Y Lee, Thomas L Knoebel

This collection of essays was born of a landmark international symposium designed to promote theological understanding by contextualizing the thought of Pope Francis—from his understanding of history to his theology of mission—within important theological conversations rarely heard in the US Catholic Church.

Its contributors demonstrate decisively that Pope Francis's magisterium is the fruit of a profound and distinctive, yet deeply Catholic, intellectual engagement with the theological and ecclesial traditions of the Church.
